Watching the growth of students, while teaching a computer science class as I am sharing my 23 years of computer operations experience from Shell Oil and 20 years of night experience teaching computer science basics in Houston Community College.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Ways to make it better...

The resources were there to development more impact areas for a well rounded Community Development Student.
